absolute power corrupts? absolutely.

A few weeks ago, Murdoch, or rather the more savage tendencies of the press as a whole, represented God. Fear of God isn’t always a bad thing in itself, if it keeps you on the straight and narrow – but politicians behaved like medieval villagers who didn’t just believe in Him, but quaked at the mere suggestion of a glimmer of a whisper of His name. You must never anger God. God wields immense power. God can hear everything you say. You must worship God, and please Him, or He will destroy you. For God controls the sun, which may shine upon you, or singe you to a Kinnock. Soon he will control the entire sky.

  1. OMFG! You’re back and you expect to just start blogging after more than a year without saying anything about why you were away. Unacceptable! Oh, your post about the Guardian Morlocks was TL:DR.

  3. Dear Weston, you are exactly the type of foreign English teacher we are looking for in China. If you haven’t already found a job, please contact me at preston.leaman@seriousteachers.com. My advice is that if you would like to teach English at the university level, you will need to ask one of your friends who has a real degree if you can borrow his diploma. Please send us a scanned copy of that diploma along with a copy of your passport and we will take care of the rest. We look forward to a long and lucrative relationship with you. Welcome to China!

  4. Professional English teachers in China need a felony? In Japan, you’re allowed to work without having had a felony conviction, but I don’t think it improves the quality of the teaching:

  5. Let’s be honest here. Any Englishman who chooses to make a “career” out of teaching English in China should be subject to mandatory sterilisation if he should ever wish to return home. The last thing England needs is more unmotivated dullards with the ambition of a snail.
